It is the only nursing school that has a nursing audit subject, which includes a whole day lecture and exams on a computer about nursing skills and etc., all NCLEX based questions and modules.

6 University of the Philippines
7 Chinese General Hospital Colleges

I might sound biased, but I'm a proud alumnus of this school. During my time, about 27 years ago, among my batch mates, only a few students didn't make it in the board exams, and during those times, Chinese General was never an A-list school of Nursing. Even in the CGFNS exam, most of us passed on the first take, and the same goes for the NCLEX. To all CGHCN faculty, keep up the good work. I'm not sure if Mrs. Berciles is still working, but she's the best.

Highly competitive admission criteria. Topnotchers again in 2014. Consistent high-ranking for board first-time takers.

8 Cebu Normal University

Consistent 100% passing rate with topnotchers on multiple spots.

One of the highest passing rates with consistent topnotchers!

The best nursing school despite the lack of facilities!

17 West Visayas State University - Iloilo

Nursing graduates of this institution never brag that they're the best, but they let their performance in board exams speak for themselves. And the result? Year in and year out, WVSU-Iloilo is consistently the number ONE performing nursing school in the Philippines with a 100% passing mark! Need I say more?

Nope, I'm not a nursing graduate of this prestigious institution. Just an admirer!

Three number-one board exam results in the last 30 years. Consistent top-10 performance year in and year out. And I'm surprised to see that a couple of people did not pass. I don't remember that school not having a 100% passing rate. But then again, I graduated in 1993. One-hundred percent rating with a classmate who took number one.

18 University of San Carlos

Because in this school, I can develop my skills and knowledge in my course (nursing).
